Celebrate the Chinese New Year and give someone the perfect Year of the Pig gift with these gorgeous beauty products

No matter how you’re celebrating the Lunar New Year (February 5th) we insist that you do it in style with the super handy and all-encompassing Estée Lauder Beautiful Fortunes Beauty Box. This little treasure trove is packed with pint-sized versions of all your favourite beauty products, keeping you totally prepared for both nights out dancing or in curled up on the sofa indulging in some self-care. The question is, are you feeling the #FOMO or the #JOMO more?

For those planning on partying all night long, don the sumptuous Smashbox photo finish Primerizer, which is a two in one primer and moisturiser tailored to give your 24-hour hydration in a light, airy and quick-dry formula, locking your look in place. Alternatively, opt for the petal soft Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base, which is packed with nourishing Shea butter, grapefruit, Geranium and Vitamins B, C and E. Follow this up with your usual routine and add a pop of lucky red with the mini MAC lipstick in a deep chili shade. Creamy, rich and matte, this is the perfect option for an understated touch of spice.

Finally, reach for the Clinique Quickliner in intense Ebony to add some gravitas to your gaze. A must-have for everyone’s make-up kit, this wonderful little liner provides smooth and even application with transfer- and water-resistant technology, giving you the sleekest of stares. Spritz a little of the fresh and floral Tory Burch Eau de Parfum, add a lick of mascara and you’re ready to head out and celebrate.

Estée Lauder still has you covered if your perfect celebration is an evening in with a glass of wine and some opulent wellness wonders. Treat yourself to a long bubble bath, pour a glass of your preferred tipple and turn up the volume on your favourite album while you lather your skin with the Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask. This little beauty helps to clear pores and to detoxify your skin, utilising active charcoal and white China clay to draw out impurities and to absorb pollutants. After you’ve soaked and scrubbed in the tub, apply some Bumble & Bumble daytime protective repair fluid to your damp tresses to restore them to their former glory. Enjoy ludicrously soft locks thanks to a blend of Camelia Oil and UV filters that help repair damaged hair.

With this multi-brand chest of treats you have all the tools for either your big night out or a much-needed wellness retreat at home – all you have to do is choose which one you’re going for! Give that special someone (whether that be a loved one or even yourself) the pleasure of choice with the Estée Lauder Beautiful Fortunes Beauty Box, which really is the gift that keeps on giving.
